A couple who re-painted their 17th Century Devon house a vivid shade of pink have been told the touch-up was illegal.

Teignbridge District Council said any alterations made to a listed building must have "listed building consent".

Owner Ann Kennedy said the cottage in Kennford has "always been this shade of pink".

Ms Kennedy said: "We haven't changed the colour, we've just restored the colour to what it was."

Its a shame TDC cant address the more important issues effecting the borough.

Seems to be one rule for some and another for others as in a lot of cases around here.

Agree Fred.

Pink is acceptable in Suffolk ..in fact it is expected... so why not in Devon?.
